This book was a page turner. I really enjoyed The Book of Life, I thought that the mythology was really cool (it sort of reminded me of Disney’s Hercules). I even like the framing device of having the story told to some bad detention kids on a field trip to a museum. This also had a Moulin Rouge feel to it as they took modern songs and added them to the story with their own little twists to them. I thought both of the male characters were funny in their own way, and Maria was super cute and sweet… which is how I would describe this movie super cute and sweet. I don’t think this movie received a lot of fanfare but I found it highly enjoyable like a nice warm cup of Mexican hot chocolate. Check this one out, no bull.
